On 31st October I challenged the Prime Minister to support pensioners by creating a pensions dashboard. A new online portal that would allow people to keep track of all their different pension pots across their working life.
The modern working environment means that people are likely to have more jobs throughout their working life than ever before, which in turn could make pensions more complicated than ever before.
The Prime Minister’s answer was not reassuring and I feel it is important to keep this issue on the Government’s agenda.
I have signed an Early Day Motion in Parliament to highlight the issue and I hope that other MPs will express their support too – www.parliament.uk/edm/2017-19/1565
I have also arranged to meet with the Association of British Insurers to discuss this issue as their research revealed that there could be 1.6m unclaimed pension pots worth nearly £20bn.
